Former NBA basketball star Allen Iverson was recently pulled over by police in Atlanta for a traffic violation. He then went into a thirty minute tirade about his social status.
“Take the vehicle, I have 10 more,” Iverson said, referring to his grey Lamborghini.
“Police don’t have anything else fucking to do except fuck with me.” He then asked, “Do you know who I am?”
The officer wrote in his report that “For the next 20 minutes, Mr. Iverson went on and on about who he was. I stated to Mr. Iverson, ‘It really doesn’t matter who you are. You tried to conceal your vehicle with a fake drive-out tag due to you not paying for your tags.’ “
Iverson then said, “I make more money than you will in 10 years,” according to the report.
In spite of making millions of dollars in the NBA, Allen Iverson was too sorry to buy a tag for his vehicle.
The Allen Iverson Story
Allen Iverson has a long and colorful history as an all star degenerate.
In 1993, Iverson was convicted under a rarely used Virginia anti-lynching statute for his involvement in a mob assault on three White teenagers. He was found guilty of hitting a White girl in the head with a chair.
This resulted in a 15 year prison sentence.
After spending four months in prison, Iverson was granted clemency by Gov. Douglas Wilder, the first black governor of Virginia. The charge was later dropped on appeal because of “insufficient evidence.”
In 1997, Iverson was stopped by police for speeding and pleaded no contest to possession of a concealed weapon and marijuana.
In 2004, Iverson urinated in a trash can at an Atlantic City casino in full view of staff and patrons. He was told by management not to return.
In 2005, Allen Iverson’s bodyguard assaulted a man in a Washington, DC nightclub after he refused to leave the VIP section for Iverson and his entourage could enter. The victim won $260,000 in a civil suit.
As of March 2010, multiple sources in the NBA were telling the media that Allen Iverson would “either drink himself into oblivion or gamble his life away,” and that he was already banned from several casinos in Detroit and Atlantic City.
In November 2010, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Allen Iverson was “broke” and “heavily in debt.” Perhaps this explains his inability to afford a car tag and his insecure rant against Atlanta police officers.
White privilege is a myth.
In Black Run America, it is blacks like Allen Iverson who reap all the benefits of skin color privilege. If Iverson had been White, he would still be in prison right now serving an extended sentence for violating federal and state hate crime laws.
Instead, Iverson was pardoned by a black governor and went on to become a multimillionaire who can afford 10 Lamborghinis, solely because he lives in advanced Western capitalist democracy with a morally permissive culture and liberal views on race.
Black Run America is the only type of society that can afford to misallocate obscene amounts of wealth on black athletes and rap artists. The talents of Allen Iverson or Lil’ Wayne would not generate such an income in any other time or place.
A hundred years ago, Allen Iverson would not have become a millionaire in America. He probably would be working on a chain gang somewhere in Virginia. Today, Iverson wouldn’t be a millionaire in any African country either.
Even in Black Run America, Allen Iverson is on the verge of bankruptcy because he doesn’t possess the discipline and character required to produce and maintain real wealth. True to his underclass roots, he drank and gambled it all away, and through his lack of virtue seems destined to return to the poverty from which he came.
We are building a narrative here. These stories are related in key ways. They were selected with a purpose in mind.
(1) In Georgia, a group of black state legislators are suing the state to dissolve the Atlanta suburbs for being disproportionately White. They argue that the existence of these cities as separate entities violates their “civil rights.”
(2) In Alabama, the Auburn football team has been haunted by negro criminality. Several black football players have claimed they were paid to play football at Auburn and other schools.
(3) In North Carolina, a White motorist was attacked by a black lynch mob, nearly beaten to death, and the news media covered up the story.
(4) In Texas, a group of Whites in Anderson Country raised the Confederate flag to honor the heroism of their Confederate ancestors, but were forced to haul it down because it was offensive to blacks.
(5) Also in Georgia, Allen Iverson was pulled over by Atlanta police, and incredulously asked them, “Do you know who I am?”
The larger point: there is a new racial caste system in the American South which has its own racial etiquette. We have gone from Jim Crow to Black Run America.
In the Jim Crow era, Whites may have lynched a negro rapist and no one would have really cared, but in Black Run America negroes can openly lynch Whites, and the national, state, and local media conspire to suppress the story.
Telling the truth is unthinkable for liberal journalists because it would make blacks look bad and contradict the establishment narrative that blacks are always victims.
Under Jim Crow, it was not unusual for Whites to create “sundown towns” for their own benefit. Now blacks can file lawsuits and argue in federal court that White cities should exist for the sole purpose of serving blacks.
In Black Run America, the promotion and advancement of blacks is one the highest ruling principles of our society, perhaps only second to the promotion and advancement of Jews.
Under Jim Crow, Southern college football teams were segregated. Now universities compete with each other to attract black players. These athletes are offered money and sexual favors to attend various colleges.
If blacks are advanced in the process, degrading our universities with ghetto athletes who are promoted as role models is no longer considered outrageous. Someone with the character of Cam Newton can win the Heisman Trophy.
Under Jim Crow, Whites built monuments all across the American South to lionize Confederate heroism. No one really cared if this offended blacks. In Black Run America, blacks are aggressively assertive of their ethnic identity, and Whites voluntarily deny themselves an ethnic identity in submissive deference to blacks.
Finally, we are light years away from Jim Crow when a black multimillionaire being driven around by a chauffeur in a Lamborghini can harangue Atlanta police officers about his social status in order to get out of a ticket in a traffic stop.
Everyone knows the score.
Few commentators are willing to discuss though what is hidden in plain sight. In the weeks ahead, we will deepen our analysis of Black Run America and compare and contrast it with Jim Crow America.
We are likely to find many more parallels.Follow Hunter Wallace on Gab, VK, Facebook and Twitter.
